Oscar grew up in the shadow of one of the most picturesque pioneers who early helped settle the West and colonized and labored among the Indians in the desert, color-country of southern Utah as well as Nevada and Arizona, JACOB VERNON HAMBLIN. Oscar was 14 years younger. Jacob was unique in several ways: first, he kept a record (diary) of his life; second, he was a spiritual man who lived by simple faith and the whisperings of the Lord which came to him which they did often; third, Jacob's calling as an Apostle and president to the Indian Mission; fourth, Jacob knew well the prophet Joseph Smith; fifth, his callings after arriving in Utah kept him close to Brigham Young and there seemed to be a mutual trust and confidence and loyalty to one another which never faltered in those growing, troublesome and periolous years.

Oscar was born in Bainbridge, Geagua County, Ohio, April 4, 1833. The country then was just a wilderness. He was the 9th child of 12 children born to Isaiah Hamblin and Daphne Haynes. His father and older brothers worked hard in clearing the land which is said by Jacob, Oscar's older brother, to have taken 20 faithful days to work to clear an acre and render it fit for the harrow and a crop of wheat. When Oscar was 5 years old his family moved to Franklin, Woolworth county, Wisconsin.

On June 12, 1837 Willard Richards, Heber C. Kimball, Orson Hyde, and Joseph Fielding were set apart to serve missions in England. They disembarked in Liverpool and began preaching the gospel in surrounding areas. Located about 30 miles from Liverpool, not far from Preston, England where the gospel was first preached, lay the village of Thornley. James and Elizabeth Walmsley Corbridge were residents of Thornley and soon heard and accepted the gospel. Elizabeth was baptized by Heber C. Kimball. (The exact date is unknown, but we do have record that an Elizabeth W. was baptized on January 22, 1837.)

In 1840 the Corbridges left their home in England to emigrate to Nauvoo, Illinois. At the time of their sailing they had three small children. Born in 1836 was Mary Ann (my grandmother, later the wife of Oscar Hamblin), William, born in 1838, and the baby John, born in 1840, who died while crossing the ocean and was buried at sea. James was a young man of thirty and Elizabeth a woman of twenty-four years. It is easy to imagine the transformation of thought and feeling that must have entered their home as they accepted the "good news" that the gospel had been restored.

Here is a GEDCOM file that is essentially the ancestors of Wallace Hamblin and Ida Minerva Rollins and their children.

Many stories are included in there. I hope to have all the stories listed separately on this site for ease of indexing and search engine finding.

I have also attached the "book" which contains these stories separately (in both RTF and TXT).

Thanks to Howard Bangerter for these. (click on attachments to seed downloads)
